We are adopting… again! A couple years ago we went through this process that brought Axel home to us.
That journey was hard in some ways, but so amazing as well. And, obviously, we think Axel is pretty great 🙂
So, we are doing another domestic infant adoption! We are adopting through Lifeline Children’s Services, which we really love, but there are some pretty large expenses associated the process. Honestly though, that’s ok by us because the care we receive and, more importantly, that birth moms and families receive is so good and it’s truly focused on the love of Jesus. We have no idea when the match will happen and don’t know for sure what it will look like, but we’re trusting God for the perfect match and to take care of everyone involved.
The last time we did this fundraiser we were blown away with the response. Not only financially, but just the overall support and encouragement that we received was overwhelming. So, we were pretty excited to have the chance to do this fundraiser again. This is a matching grant - we were approved for grant money through Hephzibah 62:4 and LifeSong - so everything you give ends up being doubled! If you are able to give, we would absolutely appreciate it, but we also are expecting you to jump in with prayer for the perfect match and for all involved.
Thank you so much for what you mean to us, and we’re excited to keep you updated with where this journey goes!
